What could be the biggest fear of a dictator drunk with power? The answer might be related to not being taken seriously. Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, banned being sarcastic in the country. What's next, making jokes?
Or maybe Kim didn't like the jokes his people were making and banned them. Or, he just wanted to be the funniest of all. I'm just kidding. I wouldn't make it 5 minutes out of jail if I lived in North Korea...
Kim Jong-un hates sarcastic people, so he banned sarcasm in North Korea.
He might be afraid of something.
Sarcasm is meaning the opposite of what you're actually saying, for all the dummies out there.
In a country where you can't directly criticize your leader even in your dreams, now you can't criticize indirectly either.
It's stated that a government official organized a meeting to describe what 'hostile manner' means.
To sump up, Kim wants his people to shut up.
People say Kim thinks that people indirectly criticized his policy of blaming everything on the USA.
Meanwhile, rebellion of the people looks bigger than it's shown to be. Lately, a lot of graffiti art making fun of the government policies has been spotted in North Korea.
Well, we keep saying "North Korea" but that's banned too.
